Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka could rejoin rotation next week
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:54 pm ET) Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka is on his way to join the team in Oakland. Tanaka, who has been on the disabled list since the end of April with a forearm strain and wrist tendinitis, is expected to start one of the games in the upcoming series in Seattle, according to the Wall Street Journal

Tanaka's last start with the Yankees came on April 23 against the Tigers. Tanaka made two rehab starts with Triple-A, and manager Joe Girardi said his velocity was better than in those starts than his start against Detroit. In his rehab outings, he averaged 91 mph, maxing out at 93 mph.

Medlen hasn't played since 2013 while working his way back from Tommy John surgery. He's yet to work his way up to five innings in extended spring training and will likely have to do so before the team sends him on out on assignment.

At Pawtucket, Bianchi was hitting .302 (16 for 53) with a pair of doubles and four RBI. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for recently-acquired Carlos Peguero, who was added to the club on Thursday.

Tigers SS Jose Iglesias returns to starting lineup Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:23 pm ET) Tigers shortstop Jose Iglesias is back in the starting lineup for Thursday's contest against the Angels.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Farmer will start Thursday's game against the Angels after Kyle Lobstein was placed on the 15-day disabled list. He's 5-1 with a 2.98 ERA and 50:19 K:BB ratio in 51 1/3 innings over nine starts with Toledo.


Red Sox P Heath Hembree sent back down to Triple-A
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6:20 pm ET) The Red Sox have optioned pitcher Heath Hembree to Triple-A Pawtucket, the team announced Thursday. Hembree, who had just been recalled over the weekend, made one appearance in his most recent stint in Boston. 

He pitched an inning on Monday, issuing a walk in an otherwise perfect frame. It was an improved performance from his only other outing this year, in which he allowed six earned runs in 1 1/3 innings on April 26. 

The Red Sox called up lefty Robbie Ross to replace Hembree on the 25-man roster.
